I29 In the essay 'Professions for Women', based on her aforementioned speech to the London/National Society for Women's Service, Woolf outlines the ways in which sex-consciousness affected, or threatened to affect, her own career as a writer. She describes the degree of resolution which she needed as a young reviewer if she were to avoid adopting the traditional 'feminine' role of sympathiser to men, or' Angel in the House', in her writing. ) As a novelist she faced a similar challenge.

In all her novels, moreover, Woolf presents male and female characters who can be seen as the victims of traditional sexual stereotyping.
